Mr. B is in a particularly good mood these days. It's Turkey Season! We bagged our first one.......
at $.39/pound and it is now thawing in the fridge. I'm going to try brining it and then roast it, a la pioneerwoman's instructions. Instead of buying a mix for the brining spices, I'm searching the "internets" for good candidates for a mix I can make myself.
And his favorite music is playing on a regular basis. Christmas carols. Yes, I know it is November 7th. (Mom reminded me that growing up, we had to wait until Thanksgiving night to break out the Christmas LPs!!) But, Mr. B is industriously participating in the Great Cookie Caper of 2007, with only occasional help from me. He makes cookies, and makes cookies, and then he makes more cookies, until he has 4,592 or so.... And then he delivers them all over the county to various clients of my transcription business.
I figure if any of my accounts wants to axe me.....they'll think twice about losing their Christmas cookie source! Just kidding. (Although one office did ask me the other day if Mr. B had them on his cookie list!)
Today, it was Spritz wreaths.....
A few days ago I made some orange flavored refrigerator cookies.... (using zest and juice of oranges from our orange tree in the backyard!) I filled two big coffee tins and set them aside. One is almost gone. That's a hazard in this house. Cookie thieves that sneak in the kitchen and take two or ten and scurry out of the room!
Happy Turkey (and Cookie) Season!
